Sawtooth Center Expansion

22 posts in this topic


Winston-Salem Arts Council has unveiled plans for the Sawtooth Building which includes revamping the building into a multi-use theater. The council is proposing an $11 million project that would convert the Sawtooth Center into a "Downtown Center for the Arts"

Let's hope they get the full funding necessary to complete the project. And, hopefully the complex will make better use of Winston Square, as it is an underutilized asset.

The Reynolds American Foundation and local employees of RJR. have pledged $2 million over three years to the comprehensive campaign of the Arts Council. A portion of the campaign money will underwrite the creation of a Downtown Center for the Arts in the Sawtooth Building.

The center will include a multi-purpose performance space called Reynolds Place, which the $2 million pledge will help construct.

im so glad work has started on this space....we needed another downtown performance space and something needed to be done to upgrade Sawtooth. Its good to see some progress during tough economic times, especially with sponsorship and corporate support from hometown companies. The major companies headquartered in the city should help invest more and build with innovation/creative design.

Thanks for the photos. Do you know if this building is set for demo or will they be rehabbing it? I like the warehouse look.

this is a great downtown addition and adds some modern architecture.....it would be nice is there was a building across from it with groundlevel retail space and a parking deck in behind. To add some density and height to the street which would bring more people down the street.
